WATCH: Kevin McCarthy schools the media on why he’s banning Swalwell and Schiff from Intel committee

Yesterday Kevin McCarthy was asked by a reporter about his decision to ban Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff from the House Intel Committee.

In fact the question was put to him as if he were a hypocrite, with the reporter asking “you said you were going to let Democrats pick their own members to the committee, but you’ve also indicated that you’re not going to let…”

That’s what McCarthy interrupted and proceeded to school the reporter on why Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff have no business being on the Intel committee.


I really like how forcefully McCarthy addresses this to the media.

Interestingly enough, CNN cut McCarthy’s comments short as soon as he said Adam Schiff is a liar:
